Killer Whale Tales at the Northwest Stream Center
On Saturday April 1, at 1 pm, the Adopt A Stream Foundation and Snohomish County Parks are presenting Killer Whale Tales at the Northwest Stream Center in Mc Collum Park, 600-128th Street SE, Everett WA 98208. Reservations are required by calling 425-316-8592 ($5 Adopt A Stream Foundation Members, $7 non-members). In addition to seeing a fabulous killer whale event, reservation holders will be able to enjoy seeing a Trout Stream Exhibit and spring flowers next to a 1/2-mile long elevated nature trail. The Gate House will open one hour in advance for early arrivals.
Killer Whale Tales was created by Jeff Hogan who has been conducting research on the San Juan Killer Whales over the last 17 years. In addition to being a biologist, Jeff is a professional photographer and a trained actor. He puts on a “whale of a show” that has been enjoyed by more than 65,000 folks along the west coast!
Jeff is bringing the San Juan Killer Whale population to the Northwest Stream Center via amazing photographs and underwater video. After attending this show, when you see a Killer Whale in the wild, you will be able to recognize if that whale is swimming to get to another location, hunting for salmon, or just playing.

Please Help the Pigs with an Urgent Winter Need!
This year nine frightened, traumatized pigs arrived from an animal cruelty seizure case. Before Pigs Peace Sanctuary, their life was a windowless barn deep in feces and dead bodies of other pigs, living in close-up view of pigs being slaughtered.
Thanks to people who cared, their life changed. When they first arrived at Pigs Peace Sanctuary they were untouchable, with a look of constant fear. They stayed together as a huddled group. Slowly the look of fear faded. Life became a dream come true.
Today your help is needed! As you can see, The favorite sleeping spot is way too small for this bonded group. (They always want to sleep together and the weather is harsh without enclosing the walls.) We need to add to the roof and extend the room to close off the cold winter weather. Your donation today will directly help the dream of peace for these pigs. We need your pig love!!!
